Touring Sleds Yamaha vs. Polaris

Looking at buying a first time 2 Up Touring sled.  I have narrowed my
choice to the Yamaha Venture 600 Triple or the Polaris Indy 600 Twin
Touring.  I understand the Venture gets better mileage, but by how
much?  Any comments on this or anything else important to consider
between these two sleds.

The Yami 600 is so smoooth, and good on gas12-15 mpg. I have a 00 600 DLX.
Cant help on the touring part but the single seater DLX is great for the long
haul.

Thanks for the info on the Venture.  That's what I was look for.  Any
info on the gas milage for the Polaris 600 twin?
